    Love the panel! Need help in picking a resort–deciding b/t GF & POFQ. My mom has trouble walking long distances, so need a compact resort. Any suggestions on which resort, & which blgd to request to be closer to restaurants/transportation? Thanks!

    Love right back at you, Sabrina!  With regard to overall number of rooms at the two resorts you mentioned, they are very close, with Port Orleans French Quarter taking a slight lead.  That said, you might find that your walking distance at Port Orleans to be shorter than you would at the Grand Floridian, unless you get a room in the main building at the Grand Floridian.  When we stayed there a couple of years ago, our room was a quite a ways away from the monorail station and buses.

    If you opt for Port Orleans French Quarter, you should consider requesting building 4 as it is very close to the bus stop and the food court!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
